better still, dont let it run if the policy is the default...... ie set the value
as a variable...and then check if that value is the default and stop the server
running....a hard exit.  not just a warning.....as its a salt..and totally pointless
if its a known value.

some may say its too harsh...is which case, just set the request to a reject if the salt is
the default value....
